Another White House Official Resigns Following Abuse Allegations

Another government official resigned this week following abuse allegations made against him.

White House speechwriter David Sorensen's ex-wife Jessica Corbett told The Washington Post that Sorensen was physically and emotionally abusive.

Sorenson resigned Friday. Just two days earlier, another White House official — staff secretary Rob Porter — resigned after two of his ex-wives said he physically and verbally abused them.

In a statement, Sorensen denied the allegations and said he was the "victim of repeated physical violence" during the marriage.
